CHEYENNE (AP) — A man is dead and an elementary school teacher in jail after a shooting in Wyoming's capital city.

Deputies arrested 33-year-old Danell Moyte on Saturday for the death of 39-year-old Christopher Garcia, according to the Laramie County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies arrived at a home in Cheyenne around 2 a.m. Saturday to find Garcia with a 9-millimeter gunshot wound, KGAB radio reports.

Garcia died at a hospital.

Moyte faced a charge of second-degree homicide and remained jailed Monday. She had no an attorney on record to comment on her behalf.

A school district statement identified Moyte as a local elementary school teacher. Moyte was suspended with pay, according to the statement.
